We are one of the largest private companies in the Brazilian energy sector and play a leading role in developing renewable energy sources in the country. We are present throughout the energy chain operating in generation, conversion, transmission and sales as well as energy solutions.
Our headquarter is in the city of Niterói, in the state of Rio de Janeiro, and our companies operate in 18 states.
Through two distributors in the states of Rio de Janeiro and Ceará we bring energy to around seven million residential, commercial, industrial, rural and public sector customers – 8.5% of all energy-consuming locations in Brazil.
We are leaders in solar energy generation in the country in both installed capacity and project portfolio. We operate the largest solar plant in Brazil in the state of Pernambuco and we are building four solar plants, two of which the largest in Latin America. We are also among the biggest wind-power players in the Brazilian marketplace.
Still in energy generation, we have about 20 small hydro plants in several states, a hydroelectric plant in Goiás and a combined-cycle thermal plant (gas and vapour) in Ceará.
Currently with 1.6 GW of installed capacity, we are building projects that will add 1.2 GW to our portfolio, allowing us to nearly double the company’s generation in Brazil by 2018.
In trading, we buy and sell conventional and incentivised energy on the free market in several states. And in transmission we keep a strategic asset for the energy integration of Mercosur – a company responsible for converting and transmitting energy from Brazil to Argentina and vice-versa.
To continue playing a leading role in the energy world we also operate as an intelligent solution integrating company, connecting our residential and business customers to the technologies that are transforming the traditional energy sector – distributed generation, automation, energy storage and electric mobility, as well as other innovative solutions.
Holding Enel Brasil, a privately held company, controls activities of conventional generation, distribution, transmission, conversion, sales and energy solutions. In renewable, we act through the subsidiary Enel Green Power Brasil (EGPB).
